WELCOME to MICHIGAN

I hope you have a great time visiting us at Genealogy "Michigan" Trails. My name is Christine Walters and I'll be your Host. Lets all explore the places and areas of Michigan that our ancestors chose to settle in. This should prove to be an exciting journey, it will be fun, and along the way we will all get a better understanding of Michigan. It will be a step back in time as we get to know the people that created Michigan and formed it into the beautiful State it now is. I want to encourage anyone who has "Michigan" ties & connections to get in touch with me. We want to hear your stories and take advantage of your personal history of this wonderful State. I need your contributions and I especially need the old history, the information that you can find about all the pioneer families, and naturally - some of the Indian History that is so important to this State. I'm also looking for Obituaries, Biographies and County History.. just about everything is helpful.

I REGRET THAT I AM UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
I don't have the time or the resources.

Some Michigan Information
The State of Michigan was admitted to the Union on January 26, 1837.

The name "Michigan" is derived from a Chippewa Indian word "meicigama" meaning "great water" and refers to the Great Lakes which hug the shores of the State. Michigan is said to have been first discovered around 1610 and inhabited by the Indians. In the mid 1700's it was claimed by the French - but was ceded to the British until the Revolution when it became part of the United States but we didn't take full possession of it until 1796 and shortly thereafter it became part of the Northwest Territory. Then from 1800 to 1805 it was connected with the Ohio and the Indian Territories. The first American settlers began settling in Michigan about 1796, coming from England but it was not until about 1818 that an appreciable amount of settlers was noticed. 1818 was the first public land sales and the work on the erie Canal attracted many. The completion of the Canal in 1825 added stimula to the immigrants. Its about this time that many came to work on the road construction heading toward Chicago. By 1840 the immigration increased to such an extent that about half of the southern peninsula was cultivated. From 1840 - 1890 there were tens of thousand of workers who came to work in the lumber and mining camps.

Here Under The Oaks July 6th, 1854, Was Born
- The Republican Party -
Destined In The Throes of Civil Stribe
To Abolish Slavery Vindicate Democracy And Perpetual The Union
Photo by Thornton Jackson County MI 4 June 1910 - contributed by Paul Petosky

Historical Marker - Under The Oaks -

On July 6, 1854, a state convention of anti-slavery men was held in Jackson to found a new political party. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" had been published two years earlier, causing increased resentment against slavery, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act of May, 1854, threatened to make slave states out of previously free territories. Since the convention day was hot and the huge crowd could not be accommodated in the hall, the meeting adjourned to an oak grove on "Morgan's Forty" on the outskirts of town. Here a state-wide slate of candidates was selected and the Republican Party was born. Winning an overwhelming victory in the elections of 1854, the Republican party went on to dominate national parties throughout the nineteenth century."
